How many miles for LAX-CDG-DXB on Air France in First?

Sorry but Continental.com isn't exactly clear.

When I pop in Continental 48 to Middle East it says 120K for First/BusinessFirst...

I have to look for the link to reference this, but I am pretty sure that you cannot redeem F rewards on partners with 3-cabin service.

FT Lurker is mostly correct. It is not possible to redeem for AF F seats using CO miles. There are some F options - QF and EK, I believe - but AF and KE are not possible.

To expand on this, Fozz and CO Insider discussed this. Based on the fact that CO does not offer a F cabin, the other Sky Team carriers will not offer theirs to CO.

FWIW, the "First" part of the "First/BusinessFirst" reference in the award chart is for Virgin Upper Class, which OnePass considers First Class. You should be able to book LAX-LHR-DXB on Virgin, though I don't know how well the connect times work.

No wonder I couldn't find the link. I heard it on the podcast!
